I wanted to purchase the Distance Sensor VL53L1X BUT the minimum range isn’t what I needed. I wondered about the VL6180X it gets really close readings. Would I be able to use the VL53L1X library for the VL6180X Distance Sensor on a raspberry pi pico?
Welcome to the forum!!
I cant imagine they would, the calls would be quite close but you should be able to swap them over quite easily.
The thing is I’m a copy paster right now until I get the hang of Micropython… What would I be looking for in the library and test.py to get them working with the VL6180X?
Had a brief look at the differences in the datasheets and in Python drivers that work for other modules.
Starting point for me would be Adafruit Circuit Python to see differences between how the each device is handled. Links below.
PS I believe the VL53L0X library will work with the VL53L1X.
